The contemporary nature of the museum's architecture takes responsibility for creating what will be tomorrow's history, while narrating the current one. Although it celebrates and shares the ideology of socialism in retrospect, it also reflects the times we live in; both in its experience and space-making. The museum, also called the Jayaprakash Narayan Interpretation Centre (JPNIC) is built on the idea of creating public architecture, whose design vocabulary endows a contemporary value to past events, but stands its ground with its 'new-found' institutional identity, reflecting the polarised views of civic authorities, curators, historians and the general public. The building - the parts and the whole - do their best to communicate the essence of the Interpretation Centre which is about the idea of socialism and about the visionary Jayaprakash Narayan.
